Bulldogs blow by Quakers

PLAINFIELD — With both the Brownsburg and Plainfield swimming and diving teams fresh off winter breaks and conference meets last weekend, each squad was tired. However, the Bulldogs stayed the course, sweeping the Quakers 106-79 on the girls’ side and dispatching Plainfield’s boys, 115-63.

“We had a really good Christmas break and did a lot of really good work, really good training,” Brownsburg coach Joshua Saylor said. “The meets right out of Christmas are sometimes a mixed bag. We always look forward to the Plainfield meet because we know it will be a competition. We know they fight hard, they race hard and I respect their program a lot. I thought our swimmers did a nice job.”

Plainfield coach Chris Cavanaugh agreed with his counterpart.

“I thought we had some solid swims,” Cavanaugh said. “Like Brownsburg, we had our conference this weekend. It’s always tough to get up for a really big meet and then turn around and swim a dual meet. We had some kids who were right on their times, which is pretty good. We’ve also had our first two early morning practices in the past two days so we were pretty tired at the end of the meet. I know Brownsburg is in the same situation, so no excuses.”

Both the Brownsburg 200 medley relay teams started off the night well for the Bulldogs as the boys’ team of Joe Myhre, Joe Ancel, Kyle Baney and Brad Green, along with the girls’ squad of Tia Scoggan, Grace Fulwider, Madison Kehr and Kristin Verpe each came away with victories.

Plainfield responded with sweeping wins in the 200 free as freshman Mallory Adair and Nick Allen each were victorious.

Brownsburg answered in the 200 IM with wins by Kierra Watson and Myhre.

Plainfield’s Victoria VanDeVoorde came back where she left off at the conference meet, winning the 50 free as Chris Tice came home with the win in the same event for the Quakers’ boys.
